University of Leicester v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and another

Town and country planning – Development. The Administrative Court allowed the claimant university's challenge to the decision of the inspector appointed by the first defendant Secretary of State, dismissing its appeal against the second defendant local planning authority's refusal of its application for a certificate of lawful use. The inspector had been wrong to refuse the certificate because that was what previous planning permissions, on their correct construction, permitted.
